Dustwood

By:

This is found in areas where there is a great deal of wood work done.

Dustwood is technically not a wood from a specific tree. It is an created fuel for fires.

Starting with the sawdust from a sawmill, adding a mixture of wax or pitch, and a few other things, the mixture is pounded or pressed toghether tightly. It is normally smashed into a round container, so when it is slipped out, it looks like a small perfectly round "log". (actually a lathed log, but you get the idea). It can either be used as a log or slices of a log can be used for a fire.

Dustwoods can contain extras. The most popular are fragrences (flowering or pine) or colorful fire (extra metal bits add color to the fire).  Certain dustwoods are made as kindling. They have pitch and some other flamable materials so they will catch quick and easy.

Many Rangers would use this as they are quite handy and store well.

In a any setting, it seems that this is perfect to smuggle items embedded inside the wood. For metal item, simply putting the log on a small fire would get you the item inside. Might use this to baffle my pcs. thanks!

While traversing the tractless deserts of Shezmu, the pc's come across a travelling caravan led by Vual, the Demon-Camel, the Lord of Lust, the Thrice-Humped...Vual is cursed to only be able to assume one form outside the Abyss, that of a rather large, golden-skinned three-humped camel,with a frog-like, black, barbed tongue......

Vual is the demonic manifestation of Lust...his followers, a cult of truly disturbed individuals, engage in bizarre orgies, travelling the desert towns, "entertaining" the desert folk with their perverse antics...

Vual's Rapture is what the cultists call their monthly festival, where they perform perverse rites to honor Vual...ofcourse folk come from great distances to witness the festivals, despite themselves, and the Cult of Vual welcomes all...

Surprisingly for such a hideous creature, Vual has the power to beguile and charm with his magical voice. His voice will always sound to pcs as the voice of the person they most desire...his followers also gain this ability slowly over time...

When the pc's meet with Vual, he tries to seduce them into joining his cult. If for whatever reason the pc's resist..well then... Vual would probably kill them for sport, as a lesson for those who "resist Vual's love"....
